Ever look up at the sky and see a new star shining bright, as if it appeared overnight? Chances are it's a nova, a long dormant star that's decided to reignite. If you’re really lucky, it might even be a supernova - a star explosion occurring roughly once every 50 years in our galaxy.
Bursting apart in a magnificent display of light and energy that can outshine an entire galaxy, the supernova's stardust then travels across space to create new life on Earth and beyond. We’re all stardust - even the iron in our blood can be traced back to a supernova from aeons ago! Paying tribute to these spectacular events, Supernova plucks dormant stars from the skies and plants them at Vivid Sydney, ready for a show each night as they suddenly ignite.
